A Modern Woman by Catherine MacDonald (Historical Fiction)

There was a commotion at the front entrance and Lily looked that way. The door burst open and a swarm of police rushed in swinging their black clubs in the air and yelling, "Raid!" A tall portly officer blew his whistle and yelled, "No one leave the room. You are all under arrest." 

It's 1923 in Reno, Nevada and seventeen-year-old Lily Diamond is serving illegal liquor in a speakeasy involved with murder and corruption. She meets handsome Joe Caponi and her haunting eyes seem to look deep within his soul and see the man he hopes to be one day. Against society and family constraints, fate intervenes and brings two people, who are destined for each other, together. Revisit the fascinating world of illegal liquor and drinking clubs, sex, murder, corruption, as you read the story of a young woman coming of age during the Jazz Age.
